    Project Description

    Unemployment is one of the biggest challenges that Europe is facing in the context of economic crisis. Senior workers are one of the most affected groups of population suffering from unemployment.

    MYBUSINESS project aims to foster the labor market reintegration of senior unemployed by empowering education and training to create their own business and develop their entrepreneurial skills and spirit.

    To this purpose, the project creates a customized action programme tailored to empower unemployed seniors in becoming self-employed or entrepreneur, on the basis on their own identified needs and barriers, strengthening their entrepreneurial skills and competences while taking advantage of their experience and promoting self-confidence, contributing not only to the creation of new jobs, but also addressing wider social and economic challenges related to aging population.
